Based in Chicago, IL, Without U2 is named after the song "With or Without You", from U2's breakthrough album The Joshua Tree.
Without U2 performs hits from all the albums, from Boy, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Rattle and Hum, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, All That You Can't Leave Behind, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, and No Line on the Horizon.
Our members are professional musicians and huge U2 fans. We will not settle for less than complete authenticity. Prior to Without U2, Duo (our Bono) entertained all over the world with Vertigo USA (U2) and Ten (Pearl Jam) to name a few, opening for such acts as Gin Blossoms, Quiet Riot, and the Bullet Boys. Bag Edge recreates the tech guitar wizardry of The Edge, and Sparky (bass) supplies the melodic low end of Adam Clayton. And true to his real-life counterpart, Larry Mullen Jr., drummer Kropper provides the heart, soul and attention to detail that makes Without U2 unrivaled, except by U2 themselves.
